UPS Volunteers Serve Up a Treat at the Teapot!

In collaboration with Volunteer West Island’s Corporate Volunteer Program, a team of enthusiastic UPS volunteers recently gave of their time and talents, helping out at a special annual Breakfast at The Teapot 50 Plus Centre in Lachine.  Judy Martini, Volunteer Support Coordinator at the Teapot, welcomed them warmly, praising their industry and effectiveness, “It’s always a pleasure having UPS volunteers – extra hands make lighter work for all of us! Definitely keeping you in mind for future events!”

The Teapot, celebrating 40 years of service, is a community centre for people 50 years of age or over.  It provides social, recreational and educational activities on a daily basis, as well as information and referral, home care/meal service for elderly shut-ins, social, cultural, educational, and leisure programs, and promotes community, volunteer, and intergenerational involvement opportunities.

Rafik Morcos, UPS Customer Solutions Program Management Director (pictured front row, far right), spoke highly of his team’s experience, “I would like to thank you again for giving us the chance to spend time at The Teapot. I know the UPS Team had a great time setting up, cooking, and assisting in every way to bring success. We look forward to future volunteering events”.

 


SharkNinja Volunteers Back Again by Popular Demand!

Celebrating Project IMPACT, SharkNinja’s expanded corporate philanthropy program, SharkNinja employees around the globe volunteered their time, talents, and resources at local non-profit groups.

The annual volunteer activity was organized in the West Island at the company level by Rosanna D’Aiuto, in collaboration with Volunteer West Island’s Corporate Volunteer Recruitment Program.

Teams of enthusiastic SharkNinja employees volunteered at Moisson Montréal, Animatch, and Omega Community Resources, warmly welcomed by these non-profit community groups where they lent a hand.

Animatch Canine Adoption Centre is staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers.  All dogs are socialized with humans, other dogs, and of course, the resident cat! Everyone was happy to see the SharkNinja volunteers!

Moisson Montreal, Canada’s largest food bank, gathers food donations and basic products all year long and distributes them to community organizations on the Island of Montreal.

Omega Community Resources, a non-profit community organization providing support and assistance to adults experiencing mental health problems, offers a diversity of programs and services at its three points of services, the Day Centre and two residential locations.

Christmas came early for Omega Community Resources in Dorval.  Dawn Bostock, Administrative Coordinator, described their experience of the partnership day with SharkNinja, “We had a blast!  And they donated a wonderful new blender for the center!”
